Webinar offered to those interested in courses with Excel and Tableau


Most organizations provide their employees with the Microsoft Office suite of tools along with Excel. The MS in Operations Management (MSOM) program has included Excel as a core aspect of the curriculum for the past seven years. During this period, Microsoft greatly increased the capabilities of Excel. Simultaneously, interest in business intelligence grew and Tableau was created as a visualization platform to help users see and understand data for modern business intelligence. As a result, the MSOM program has developed a new course to introduce the additional tools and visualization techniques available in Excel and Tableau.

In this webinar, an overview of the new Advanced Decision Support Tools and Visualization for Operations Managers course will be covered, including topics on:

  • Data tools
  • Additional graphics
  • New Data Query Techniques
  • New analysis capabilities
  • Templates and forms
  • Dashboards

Prospective students, current students, and professors interested in learning more about additional visualization tools and techniques are invited to join the Lunch & Learn webinar, “Visualization Tools and Techniques Available to Support the Operations Manager”, at Noon CST on Wednesday, February 16, presented by MSOM Instructor Kirk Michealson. Register for the webinar.

The Industrial Engineering Department of the College of Engineering offers two professional graduate programs: the Master of Science in Operations Management (MSOM) and the Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM). The MSOM program began in 1974 and is designed for professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, including commercial and government operations. Students learn to create value for the production of goods and services while working with suppliers and customers around the world. The MSEM program began in 2017 and prepares engineers to lead and manage teams, projects, and organizations with technical workforces to achieve strategic goals. Programs also include graduate certificates in operations management, engineering management, project management, lean six sigma, and homeland security to broaden students’ understanding of the current skills needed by operations managers and engineering. All programs have the objective of “Learn it today. Use it tomorrow”.
